I’m not sure how many people watched the first season of “Doll & Em,” but I’m very glad HBO renewed the show. It’s a terrific showbiz dramedy starring Emily Mortimer (playing herself) and the actresses’ real life best friend Dolly Wells that isn’t just about navigating the world of Hollywood, but also about the balance of middle-aged friendships and more. It’s great stuff (read our review of the first season) and the pair are back for more.
The first trailer for season two has dropped, and it looks like once again, there will be a well selected batch of cameos. Harvey Weinstein, Olivia Wilde, and Evan Rachel Wood are among the faces that pop-up, with the next batch of episodes seemingly finding the pair trying to put on a stage production. And of course, they run into the kind of problems only they could get into. It looks like another warm and funny entry from Mortimer and Wells, and I’m eager to dive in and check it out.
“Doll & Em” season two launches on Sunday, September 13th. Watch below.
